Atmosphere is very nice, kind of bohemian. Also its rather big, different rooms 😊 and if you get window seat, you are lucky. Service is friendly and good, totally enjoyable.

I visited 4 cafes/restaurants/bubs within 2 busy days and this has been the best of the rest. We had duck for main and it was coocked to perfection, the side vegies were hot and tasty not like i have had in some other places-luke warm and watery. My wife took salmon-shrimp pasta which lacked that good crawfish sauce..bit dry and... More
